KARACHI: As part of its ongoing maintenance activities, Karachi's primary electricity supplier K-Electric (KE) will be carrying out a critical maintenance activity at Pipri West Grid today (Sunday).

In a statement, KE said that the maintenance activity requires a power shutdown from 9am to 1:30pm during which there may be temporary interruption of supply in areas connected to the above-mentioned Grid.

"Interruptions in power supply due to maintenance and technical faults should not be equated with load shedding," the statement added.

Areas that may witness power outages during the maintenance activity include B-4 customers (Amreli Steel, Dewan Cement, Naveena Steel), 132kV RECP, Gharo, BOC, and Dhabeji Grid.

As per the power supply company, customers may also reach out to KE’s social media platforms or via call centre 118 for further guidance.

The maintenance activity comes as KE has been carrying out maintenance activities on multiple grids in recent days.

A day earlier, the power supplier announced that parts of Korangi would experience around a 9-hour electricity shutdown due to a “critical maintenance activity” at Korangi South Grid on Saturday (today).

Before that, KE had carried out maintenance activity at Malir Grid on December 29 to ensure the stability and reliability of the power supply to consumers residing in these areas.
